    The next bike.



    Will kind of look like this, only with a Rocco World Cup for rear shock and 66 RC3 for fork.

    Whats with the triple Crank? That's different seeing a triple crank on a freeride type bike.

    FR style bikes generally don't remove the granny gear but the largest cogs, often replacing them with a bashguard. DH people often run smaller cassettes to compensate for this.

    ah, the largest ring, hmm, XCers are the one hoppin logs, i dont know why DHers need bash guards, seems like another ploy to wimpy up future generations.

    DHers need one because they only have 1 chain ring up front and if that gets screwed up you got problems.
